BLUFF STREET UPDATE
November 14-November 21

Work Schedule

  • Before Thanksgiving, all of the barrels and traffic control devices will be removed, and the roadway will be open. Motorists will be able to drive the road in its permanent configuration. Work will be suspended for the holiday weekend.
     
  • After Thanksgiving, utility work, power line work, and punch list activities will continue through mid-December. Intermittent shoulder/lane closures are possible.
     
  • Signal light work, sidewalk installation, and trail work continues throughout the project through mid-December.
     
  • Crews will be performing finishing activities on the retention wall that runs along the back of the Sun Stone Condominiums, as well as installing fall protection fencing in and near the area. Residents of these condos should avoid parking in the parking stalls along the retention wall to protect their vehicles from any damage until further notice.
     
  • The pedestrian tunnel remains closed and under construction. Crews will begin painting the tunnel and walls this week.
     
  • Landscaping work will continue throughout the project through mid-December.
     
  • The ribbon-cutting celebration is scheduled to take place on December 19, with details to be announced.

Construction is weather sensitive, especially during paving. The above schedule is also subject to change due to equipment, material, and other unforeseen circumstances. 


TRAVEL ADVISORY  

The speed limit has been reduced to 30 MPH through the construction zone. Thank you for slowing down and keeping workers safe.
 
There are several traffic cameras along the corridor the public can access at any time. Click here for an up-to-the-minute look at project progress and traffic conditions.

ALL BUSINESSES OPEN DURING CONSTRUCTION
To access businesses on the east side of Bluff Street, choosing a side street access is recommended, as most businesses on the east side have rear or side entrances as well as access from Bluff Street. The intersection of 500 North and Bluff street is closed as crews tie in to the new storm drain system. Please access businesses from 500 North or Bluff Street.


PROJECT OVERVIEW
This project is a four-fold undertaking and includes:

  • Upgrading and improving all utilities including storm drain, culinary water, sewer, fiber optics, gas, electrical and an upgraded Advanced Traffic Management System.
  • Increasing capacity by adding an additional northbound and southbound lane from 100 South to 1250 North.
  • Re-configuring the intersection at Sunset Boulevard and Bluff Street to improve traffic flow and increase safety.
  • Adding a dedicated right turn lane from westbound St. George Boulevard to northbound Bluff Street which will improve safety and mobility.
Project completion anticipated for late Fall 2018.
